This non-transfer interdisciplinary degree offers a range of coursework to prepare students who want to explore the social and behavioral sciences as a foundation of lifelong learning, or as an introduction to the related fields of Sociology, Psychology, Anthropology, Economics, History, Social Sciences and Political Science. For additional information, please see an MSJC counselor.
MSJC offers a range of course work to prepare students for the workforce or to transfer to four-year colleges and universities. All four-year institutions prescribe their own standards for course evaluation and admissions. Courses that fulfill major requirements for an associate degree in this program might not be the same as those required for transfer into a similar major at a four-year university.
Transfer students are advised to do research on prospective majors and careers through the Career/Transfer Center and the MSJC catalog. Students interested in transferring to CSU’s or UC’s can access major preparation by visiting http://www.assist.org. All students are advised to meet with a counselor at least once a semester to create or update their comprehensive education plan.
